Tool Chest Refurb #5: Everything Below the Lid

08-20-2012 06:26 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 104 comments »

Chest-like object has suffered a bit of neglect, to be sure, and for that there isn’t much of an excuse. Except for these two words: Family and Job. :-) Where in the heck am I with this refurb? Last installment says I ‘completed’ the lower skirt, but what’s pictured includes a skirt that’s not yet permanently attached to the chest. Issue? Well, kinda. But that’s not what this installment is gonna cover. Instead of the base, I’ve moved to the middle of the chest to work the uppe...

The Slippery Slope #8: Saw Sharpening! Preppin your weapons ...

07-01-2013 06:49 PM by chrisstef | 103 comments »

Wow, seems like I do one blog post per year, so … here’s my annual installment. My last post was a bit prophetic, “handsaws in my future”. I had a hunch that this was the direction my shop habits were heading but I wasn’t 100% convinced until now. I like quiet, I like the smell of wood being cut, ive got a 10 month old at home who isn’t the most sound of sleepers, and ive got some “old soul” in me. This leads me on a new journey into making t...

New Features: Blocklists

05-16-2010 06:35 PM by Martin Sojka | 103 comments »

Not one of the positive features but unfortunately it seems like there was no chance to avoid adding self-managed blocklists here at LumberJocks. Requested by many members recently I believe this new feature will be vital for further growth and good atmosphere here. When you choose to block someone, it means they: Can’t comment on your profile Can’t comment on your posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews, workshop) Are removed as your buddy, and you are re...

01-26-2012 01:17 AM by MSlumberjocks | 100 comments »

The wheels on the top secret project go round and round, round an….... Ok, I’ll stop that since the one I’ve worked on so far isn’t going around too well.I (William) am making a seperate post on the wheels since it has been my biggest fiasco of this project thus far. We (KTMM and I) changed the design of the wheels from the plan to use the material we had. I had this grand idea on how to true the circumference up balance it on my lathe. This post will start with the...

I Finally Did It, Cut Off The End Of A Finger

12-22-2009 03:46 PM by jockmike2 | 96 comments »

Yes I was careless and in a hurry and had been up since 2:30am and had just taken the guard off two days ago to rip some 3” stock and failed to put it back on the tablesaw.. I was pushing through a piece of Purpleheart and reached over the piece to pull it on through and it pulled my right hand into the blade. I lost the end of my right ring finger, and it took a good bite out of my middle finger. It”s about 8:30am and my wife is trying to get hold of a hand surgeon because It als...

The top-secret project..... #5: The Assembly Line

01-23-2012 06:21 AM by MSlumberjocks | 95 comments »

To keep things seperated nicely, this post will start into the assembly process. I (William) have started assembly of certain sub-assemblies. The assembly of the entire thing cannot begin in earnest until KTMM gets back to Vicksburg to do some of his magic on the frame. Some of the sub-assemblies though that are already to a finished state, I’m taking the liberty of going ahead with some of them.So,I ended my last post with the for trunnion assemblies already partially done.To assemble ...
